Blooming trees against gray skies -- that's what spring in Victoria looks like for days at a time. But the real beauty is when the blossoms show their brilliance against a bright blue sky.
Victoria is known for having the earliest blooms in Canada. But not this year. There's a heat wave in the east and we're getting the cold, blossom-retarding winds. But still there are those pretty pink trees everywhere reminding me that spring is here.
